What Are People Saying about this Title?
"This program was a great experience for the both of us, and we find that we have continued to utilize a lot of the tools we were given in our newly married life including ongoing discussion of each others' expectations and collaboration on household maintenance and financial responsibilities. Our biggest takeaways were provided to us by the older married couples who shared their own relationship challenges and who had several years of wisdom and experience to share. They showed us how we should always strive to communicate with each other in a way that is loving and respectful, even if there are issues that can't be resolved easily in a few discussions. This program, we feel, was the most honest approach in providing engaged couples to have the necessary guidance, with the help and grace of God, to develop a lifetime plan for loving communication and problem solving for years to come."
Julie and Thomas, married 6 months
"We felt that the Transformed in Love marriage preparation program was a great experience. The sessions taught us a lot about ourselves, each other, our faith, and our relationship by bringing up topics we may not have otherwise thought about or discussed. We enjoyed being able to discuss topics on our own while also having married couples to give input and advice. We would recommend this to program to any engaged couple."
Leanne and Daniel, engaged
"Transformed in Love far exceeded our expectations. It helped us to understand ourselves and each other better, to communicate better, and to anticipate issues we will have to face in our marriage. It did all this in a deeply faith-filled way that clarified the meaning of marriage as a sacrament. We would recommend Transformed in Love without hesitation to all engaged couples."
Michael and Carmen, engaged
